Great resort style hotel; nice room with some seriously beautiful furniture; nice facilities; decent breakfast; even greater for its' location in the quiet corner of the very busy West Surabaya Centre, suitable for both business and leisure. I'm sure it has live up to its' 4 stars standard in the past. Now, some serious makeover, on utilities, maintenance and housekeeping,... More

My first stay at this hotel as all my other choices were fully booked. Would have been a great place to holiday or stay a few years back as it is of the "resort/chalets" type. But the rooms and the grounds are in need of a total revamp. The room I stayed in was split-level and well furnished with stuff... More

I had visited Equator hotel in 2008 and had a very nice stay for 2 days. On my next trip to Surabaya I decided to stay there again, but it was disappointing. It was amazing how much the hotel had been run down for the last 3 years. The rooms were not clean, we had to change the room twice.... More

(+) Nice environment, nice staff, nice service, quiet room. Some people will love the ethnic style of interior. (-) Unfortunately, my room was not clean enough. I found the dead frog in the corner of the bathroom! Only 2 golf car available for transporting from room to the lobby (it can be so frustating when you in a hurry).

Checking into my 'room' was a very pleasant surprise - we were shuttled to our quarters by a small motorised vehicle. Each unit actually consists of an individual chalet with two levels - as one enters, there is a small narrow sitting area. Going up the stairs, I was surprised to see a huge bedroom - furnished like it is... More
